If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. ~ II Chronicles 7:14
Personal Responsibility, not blame.
Although our government has practiced financial suicide for decades now, WE are ultimately responsible for the actions of our elected officials… they are but representatives of the people.
Solutions start and end with the man in the mirror. Before pointing fingers at our government we HAVE to make certain our own financial house is in order. In fact, I wrote an article for Five Cent Nickel – one of my personal favorites – on this subject of taking personal responsibility of our situation rather than blaming others… including the government.
In saying all of this, I could not help but post this video today…
Sometimes humor is the best way to raise awareness. If this video rings true… be sure to examine your own financial life and make sure you are doing all you can and all you should!
